Top 100 3PL Inbound LogisticsHICKORY, NC (August 10, 2018) – Transportation Insight, a global Enterprise Logistics Provider and end-to-end supply chain strategist, is featured among industry analysts’ premiere lists of leading third-party logistics (3PL) providers. Delivering Tier One transportation and supply chain solutions for more than 1,500 manufacturers, retailers, e-tailers and distributors across North America, Transportation Insight is selected as an Inbound Logistics Top 100 3PL Providers for the seventh consecutive year. The recognition follows the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame member’s continued ascent in the annual lists of Global and Domestic 3PLs published by market-leading 3PL industry analyst Armstrong & Associates.

“Leveraging a robust portfolio that includes a blend of proprietary and commercial technology applications, deep domain expertise and a continuous improvement mindset, we’re able to engineer supply chain solutions that align with client partners’ business goals and help them accelerate their performance,” says Transportation Insight President and CEO Chris Baltz. “Through our Co-managed Logistics® approach we offer North American shippers a roadmap for process optimization, as well as the data collection, management and analysis required to validate our recommendations and drive an enterprise’s bottom-line improvement. This industry recognition ratifies our two decades of efforts focused on providing the marketplace with end-to-end supply chain service offerings that position our client partners to become better companies and dominate their marketplace.”

Transportation Insight’s top-tier core and value-added supply chain services feature best-in-class solutions across multiple modes, including Parcel, LTL and Truckload. Transportation Insight’s strategic carrier sourcing, freight invoice audit and payment, network optimization and LEAN consulting and client training underpins the business consultant’s ability to improve shippers’ transportation cost management. Meanwhile, with supply chain and advanced parcel analytics, parcel audit and optimization, warehousing, international logistics management and import/export compliance consulting, Transportation Insight’s service portfolio can be customized to bring optimal value to e-commerce shippers operating in business-to-consumer and business-to-business environments.

“The proliferation of omni-channel strategies and e-commerce sales throughout the global economy challenges companies not only operating in the retail sector, but also distributors and manufacturers that support retailers and e-tailers with increased variability and on-time delivery in multiple channels,” Baltz says. “Our advanced solutions are designed to help client supply networks react more quickly to demand changes and maintain desired profitability and growth. As a strategic business partner, we see our function as one that fosters continuous evaluation and innovation of the end-to-end supply chain so that our client partners are able to keep improving their ability to satisfy their end customers’ demands.”

Inbound Logistics’ annual Top 100 3PL Providers list serves as a qualitative assessment of service providers that are best equipped to meet and surpass evolving outsourced logistics needs. Organizations recognized in the annual list are selected based on submitted information, personal interviews and online research compared against shippers’ emerging global supply chain and logistics needs.

“Leading companies are grappling with complex challenges such as e-commerce distribution and fulfillment, demands for supply chain speed and agility and stringent omni-channel requirements. Transportation Insight continues to offer solutions to help companies meet these challenges,” says Inbound Logistics Editor Felicia Stratton. “Inbound Logistics chose Transportation Insight as a Top 100 3PL Provider because its solutions create a ripple effect of efficiencies across the entire value chain, and help solve specific challenges and improve processes.”

Transportation Insight’s success providing client partners with effective supply chain solutions that meet ongoing and emerging needs is reflected by the U.S. Environmental Protection SmartWay Excellence Awardee’s ongoing ascent in Armstrong & Associates’ annual lists of largest 3PL providers. In the 3PL analyst’s 2018 list of Top 50 Domestic 3PLs, Transportation Insight climbed to No. 20. The lead logistics provider is No. 37 in A&A’s annual Global List of leading 3PLs based on revenue.

In addition to this latest recognition from industry analysts and publications, Transportation Insight’s comprehensive supply chain capabilities are further reflected by other 2018 awards for supply chain excellence, including Inbound Logistics’ G75 award for top green supply chain partners, Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Project Award and Food Logistics’ Top Green Providers. This year, Supply & Demand Chain Executive recognized three of Transportation Insight’s domain experts as Pros to Know, and members of the company’s deep roster of industry thought leaders are regularly invited to share their insight during industry events and association meetings. Recent and upcoming speaking engagements offer insight to audiences attending events sponsored by the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina, APICs and the Institute of Management Accountants.
